Voting's Not Working

The lamestream media told you:

According to the latest surveys, Congress has an approval rating somewhere between 9 and 15%. The re-election rate for incumbents in the 2012 election was a scorching 91%, higher by far than the margin any individual official every obtains.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

That does not make any sense. I'm not looking for an explanation here. I'm just pointing out that something is severely wrong. I don't want this disjoint to slip by. The election process is not working. Is "Give them the vote and tell them they're free" actually happening before our very eyes? Whatever rolls through your mind to explain, or more likely rationalize this phenomenon, something ain't right. Voting isn't working the way it's supposed to.



And never will again. The tipping point has been passed, there are more takers than makers.
Any fixing that was possible is no longer.
